Every parent can attest to the fact that raising a child is no easy feat. What more can be challenging for couples when their relationship issues get in the way of parenting? While this can be concerning or even so stressful for all the parties involved, there is always a way to make things easier. Here are some ways that couples can work out their relationship in order to make positive co-parenting work. Read more. 

What is Positive Co-Parenting

There is a growing number of couples whose relationships do not stay but they end up with a child or children together. While many of them embrace the concept of co-parenting, much has to be worked out in order for the child to grow up secure in the love of his or her parents.

There are still couples who continue to be in conflict when co-parenting. But there is actually a counterpart–cooperative or positive co-parenting.

Positive co-parenting happens when both parents agree on some basic rules for raising children. They weigh heavily on the child’s best interest when making decisions and both parents respect each other’s participation in parenting practices.

The Mom’s Part

Whether in a solo or co-parenting situation, moms would usually take the huge responsibility of ensuring their child’s welfare. This is because moms are innately independent, strong, reliable, and nurturing.

But when it comes to raising a child, the strongest moms know that they need a reliable support system to make things work.

Strong Connections
